KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Tuesday praised Senior Federal Advisor Rehman Malik for resigning from the Senate on the issue of the dual nationality.

He said that Rehman Malik has raised the heads of over 1.5 million overseas Pakistanis with pride by resigning the senate membership.

Speaking to Malik on telephone, Hussain said that the opposition parties were claiming that the bill on the dual nationality was being introduced in order to protect Rehman Malik, said a statement issued by the MQM here on Tuesday.

The resignation by Malik has thrown the opposition off balance, he added.

The MQM chief said that Malik had demonstrated by showing solidarity with the overseas Pakistanis, that the bill was actually introduced for giving the right to vote to Pakistanis living abroad.
